Danger Will Robinson! Some of the following information is serious, and some 
is nonsense. Some of the things that might at first seem to be nonsense, are 
not. And some things referenced below, which come from serious credentialed 
scientists, are in fact nonsense. Whatever the case, it's been included. Good 
luck sorting it out.

Understanding gravity is a matter of time.

UFOs and the New Physics:

There is a fairly large body of evidence which supports the idea of a strong 
relationship, and possibly an equivalent fundamental source, for 
electromagnetism and gravitation. Many references to this effect are contained 
in this resource list. But for now, let's forget about the experimental 
evidence and theoretical ideas which are presented here, and begin with first 

What if our knowledge of physics had evolved differently? 

What if no one had ever given a thought to any theory of gravitation, before 
we discovered the principles and theories of electromagnetics and the two 
nuclear forces. We might have developed some fairly good theories which unify 
the "three" forces. We would know that clumps of matter are held together 
primarily by electromagnetic forces. And we would find experimentally that if 
we separate some of these clumps of matter, a small force continues to exist 
which trys to bring them back together. Would it seem rational to speculate 
that this force is something entirely new and completely different from 
electromagnetics? Would it not be a great foolishness to invent something new 
and call it gravity and claim that it has no relationship with the known 
forces, and then write elaborate mathematical theories which describe it 
solely as geometry? Or, would it be more rational to see it as what it 
probably is -- a manifestation of the electromagnetic forces which we already 
know to hold matter together?

Could it be that electric charge is a fundamental thing, and inertial mass is 
merely a shadow of something primal, and what we know as a gravitational field 
is merely the net result of other primary fields? Geometrize it if you find it 
useful to do so, but please recognize that defining gravity as geometry lends 
no information to the understanding of its cause.

Of all the forces we know, there is none stronger than a paradigm. -- Robert

Hypothesis: The electromagnetic field is the source of gravitation. This 
treatment of gravitation is consistent with the quantum theory of matter, 
which holds that electric charge (or `generalized charge') is the most 
fundamental attribute of matter. Experimental predictions of the theory 
include: (1) any massive body generates a time-dependent gravitational field; 
(2) there is a linear correlation between the gravitational red-shift of a 
stellar source and the energy of cosmic rays emitted by that source, given by 
$ {\Delta \nu}/{\nu_0} = energy (eV)/10^{27} $; (3) the maximum energy of 
cosmic rays is $ 10^{27} $ eV; (4) this limit is associated with an infinitely 
red-shifted stellar object, an ``electrostatic black-hole,'' at the potential 
$ c^2/G^{1/2} = 10^{27} $ volts. Finally, the theory predicts that the 
gravitational potential near any charged elementary particle is many orders of 
magnitude greater than the Newtonian value.

Geometric Interpretation of Electromagnetism in a Gravitational Theory with 
Torsion and Spinorial Matter
Author(s): Kenichi Horie (KEK Japan)
Comments: Ph.D. thesis, 98 pages, LaTeX file, ca 276kB 
Possible geometric frameworks for a unified theory of gravity and 
electromagnetism are investigated: General relativity is enlarged by allowing 
for an arbitrary complex linear connection and by constructing an extended 
spinor derivative based on the complex connection. Thereby the spacetime 
torsion not only is coupled to the spin of fermions and causes a four-fermion 
contact interaction, but the non-metric vector-part of torsion is also related 
to the electromagnetic potential. However, this long-standing relation is 
shown to be valid only in a special U(1) gauge, and it is a formal consequence 
of the underlying extended geometry.

-- Section 3.7 Non-Inductive Coils
Several authors have suggested that v x B term in the Lorentz expression 
should be called into question. Several unverified experimental results have 
ever been made. An experiment is suggested to test one or several of these 
theoretical views. This is an area where the experimental procedure is 
workable and the outcome could have direct results in the area of inertia 
During the late 60's William J. Hooper put forth an interesting theory 
involving the v x B terms dynamic electrical circuits. There was and is 
uncertainty as to the exact physical understanding of the Biot-Savart-Lorentz 
law and Ampere's law involving the set of reaction forces. Peter Graneau has 
studied these expressions. Hoopers view was that there are three different 
types of electric fields due to the distribution of electric field, and two 
due to induction.
At the heart of the issue is the connection of the magnetic field and its 
source in the charged particles. EM theory is presently consistent with the 
idea that spinning magnetic dipoles create effects indistinguishable from 
charged particles. There has been no critical experiment which can disprove 
whether a magnetic flux rotates with its source. If it does co-move with its 
source then it is logical to assume that a motional electric field in a fixed 
reference frame of the current induces a magnetic field. This concept is 
likewise consistent with a field-free interpretation such as Ampere's original 
(with 4 pages more about Hooper's theories) 

FORCES, by Nils Rognerud 1994 ( (available at the elektromagnum 
web site) 
This paper is a review of the problem of the observable action of 
gravitational forces on charged particles. The author discusses the induced 
electric fields and the sometimes overlooked unique physical properties. He 
analyzes several experiments, showing the reality of the induced electric 
fields. The current interpretation, based on the idea of only one electric 
field, with certain characteristics, is compared with alternative approaches.
The Hooper Coil:
The author has tested a setup by pulsing strong currents, opposite and equal, 
through multiple parallel conductors. The configuration of the conductors in 
this type of experiment will cancel the B-fields, while still producing an Em 
field, in accordance with Eq. 4.2. This is similar to an experiment by Hooper 
(W. J. Hooper), who successfully predicted and measured the motional electric 
field - all in zero resultant B-field.
Interestingly, all of the above experiments can influence an electron with a 
zero B-field, in the region of the electron. This has some profound 
implications - one of which is that the motional electric force field is 
immune to electrostatic or magnetic shielding. Experimentally, it can be 
confirmed that the motional electric field is immune to shielding and follows 
the boundary conditions of the magnetic (not electric) field. The only way to 
shield a motional electric field is to use a magnetic shield around the source 
of the magnetic flux - containing it at the source. These effects are not 
startling if one remembers that the motional electric field is a magnetic 
effect and that a magnetic field has a different boundary condition than the 
electric field.

Gravity is a PUSH!
United States Patent Number 5,377,936

In the early 1960s, Erwin Saxl conducted a series of experiments which seemed 
to illustrate a non-zero coupling between EM and gravitational fields. He 
claimed to see a change in the period of a torque pendulum when its electric 
potential was raised.

US Patent # 3357253 -- "Device and Method for Measuring Gravitational and 
Other Forces", awarded to E.J. Saxl, December 1967 

"An Electrically Charged Torque Pendulum", by E.J. Saxl, 
Nature 203, Page 136, July 11 1963.

US patent number #5,076,971.
Barker places radioactive elements inside the sphere of a Van de Graaff 
generator, runs it at a negative potential for several minutes/hours/days -- 
and finds that the rate of radioactive decay is extremely enhanced -- with 
some relationship to the magnitude of the negative potential.

The principal investigator undertook a series of experiments to test the 
"Barker effect" and the "Keller Catalytic Process" in changing the rate of 
radioactive decay of heavy elements (elements heavier than lead, such as 
radium, thorium, or uranium, all of which are radioactive). Barker claims that 
subjecting radioactive materials to high electrostatic potentials (50,000 
volts to 500,000 volts) can increase or decrease the rate of radioactive 
decay, with short exposures of the high voltage capable of inducing erratic 
decay rates which slowly return to normal over a period of weeks. Keller 
claims that subjecting radioactive materials to the high heat and fusing 
reaction of a chemical process (Keller Catalytic Process) can eliminate the 
radioactivity completely.

Carr, Otis (1959). "Amusement Device," (i.e. A Flying Saucer), US Patent No. 

Otis Carr's work involved counter-rotating charged discs that supposedly 
produced thrust when they reached a certain speed in relation the the earth's 
rotational speed and became activated by free energy from space. Maybe he did 
have something." -- James E. Cox

Carr's work is similar in some respects to Hooper's inventions. In both cases, 
an anti-gravitational effect is reported to result from equal and opposite 
electric currents. Furthermore, one of Hooper's embodiments, the pancake coil, 
has an uncanny resemblance to the gravitational shielding experiments which 
were recently conducted in Tampere Finland (1992 and 1995). Except that in the 
Tampere experiments, the equal and opposite current is generated in a 
superconductor disk by way of the Meissner effect. Will we soon begin to 
recognize value of the discoveries that Carr made nearly 40 years ago, and 
Hooper made over 25 years ago? -- Robert Stirniman

National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Lewis Research Center, 
Presented at the 31st Joint Propulsion Conference and Exhibit, San Diego CA, 
10-12 Jul. 1995; sponsored by AIAA, ASME, SAE, and ASEE NASA-TM-106963 E-9719 
NAS 1.15:106963 AIAA PAPER 95-2601 Avail: CASI HC A03/MF A01 Experiments were 
conducted to test assertions from Patent 3,610,971, by W.J. Hooper that self-
canceling electromagnetic coils can reduce the weight of objects placed 
underneath. No weight changes were observed within the detectability of the 
instrumentation. More careful examination of the patent and other reports from 
Hooper led to the conclusion that Hooper may have misinterpreted thermal 
effects as his 'Motional Field' effects. There is a possibility that the 
claimed effects are below the detection thresholds of the instrumentation used 
for these tests. CASI Accession Number: N95-28893

I have two problems with the methodology used by the NASA scientists in the 
above experiment.
First -- The amount of ampere-turns used in the NASA experiment was 
substantially lower than the amount used by Hooper. Hooper found that his 
effect increased in proportion the square of the current. If you were 
motivated to verify that the Hooper effect exists, would you not try to 
conduct the experiment with MORE current, rather than less? Second -- NASA 
conducted it's tests by energizing the coils and making measurements in an 
immediate on-off mode, rather than letting things run for a while as Hooper 
did. NASA's reason for doing this was to avoid errors due to thermal effects. 
This makes sense. But what does not make sense is that if you are trying to 
verify an original experiment and you make changes, you have an obligation to 
also conduct the experiment in it's original mode. To do otherwise is bad 
science. But what could be wrong with testing things in an immediate on-off 
mode? Well, it can be seen in other experiments that a gravitational effect 
sometimes results from macroscopic spin alignment of the quantum angular 
momentum of a large number of microscopic particles. It has been demonstrated 
in other experiments that it takes time for these particles to come into 
alignment. For example in the inventions of Henry Wallace it sometimes took 
minutes for the "kinemassic" gravito- magnetic field to fully manifest itself. 
The reason that it takes time for particles to come into alignment, could be 
much the same reason that it takes time to permanently magnetize a magnet. 
Wallace found that the "kinemassic" effect occurs with elemental materials 
which have a component of unpaired spin in the atomic nucleus. This includes 
all common isotopes of copper, which of course is the material used in 
Hooper's coils. 

Incidently, NASA essentially has an economic monopoly in the lucrative market 
for microgravity materials research. -- Robert Stirniman
